to be the top winner. meanwhile, back here at home harry reid has said, well, we are going to have -- try to get a gun control bill to the floor, it will include no assault weapons ban. get that? not that they bring it up and vote it down. harry reid will not even let an assault weapons ban come to the floor for a vote even though the american people support it by about 55% and despite all of the great work that dianne feinstein has done on that bill. harry reid proving to be a weenie. that and more, here on current tv.

's right. not dead. judging by my twitter feed, many of you are very angry at harry reid tonight for killing the assault weapons ban in the package of legislation that was voted out of the judiciary committee. the judiciary committee's legislation on gun safety includes universal background checks, among other things. an assault weapons ban was also in there. the vote in the committee on the assault weapons ban was straight party line, ten democrats in favor, eight republicans opposed. but unfortunately, the judiciary committee does not reflect the politics of the senate as a whole. the judiciary committee, like some other committees, is a bit more liberal than the full senate. those committees can sometimes pass bills that cannot pass the senate. it is not unusual for the majority leader of the senate, whether he's a republican or a democrat, to slightly rewrite committee past bills before introducing them to the full senate. the majority leaders' rewrites and edits have one guiding principle in mind, attracting the votes needed for passage. committee chairmen have to do exactly

. commonsense legislation, was it common sense that was used by harry reid, senator harry reid by not putting forth diane 79 stein's assault weapons ban. not giving that to a floor vote in order to try to save and preserve other things that might be able to be passed? >> a majority didn't believe he had the votes to get past 6, the magic number in the senate. i think the divisive issue of guns being used primarily by folks on the right to drive voters isn't working and that's what we see in the polls. that's analagous to what we're seeing going back to the president's speech in israel. 70% of jews voted for president obama, we're seeing wedge issues failing to divide democratic voters, frankly. >> and michael, with regard again to commonsense legislation, the appeal by the vice president and the mayor of new york. what is it about that that republicans don't sign on to those people that want to see those individual rights preserved. you heard the vice president saying none of this legislation proposal infringes on people's individual rights. >> that's the word today. and it's the slippery slo

debate. senate majority leader harry reid announcing the assault weapons ban authored by california senator dianne feinstein will not be included in the democratic gun control legislation that currently is working its way through the chamber. instead reid says feinstein's proposal will have, quote, an opportunity for a vote, possibly as a separate amendment. now this effort was sparked by the newtown school shooting in december and since then, we have seen a surge in applications for gun permits across this country. according to the fbi we saw a record 19 1/2 million background checks for firearms last year. nearly three million of them coming in december alone. that is the most for any month on record. and more than 7 million from december through february. that is a 54% increase from the previous year. this national trend is echoed in the microcosm of newtown, connecticut. where law enforcement say they have seen the pace of applications for gun permits double. so what does this all mean for the gun control debate, an effort going forward? joining me fox news political analyst jua
times" reports dianne feinstein stormed from harry reid's office monday when she was informed that her ban would not be included in the bill. the measure never had a chance citing lobbying and the nra and concerns from both parties doubt about the impact on stopping gun violence and lack of support from the gun safety groups like that of former congresswoman gabrielle giffords. instead of imposing new regulations, republicans are calling for existing laws to be enforced. >> do you think background checks and improving background checks will be part of that? >> they should actually do a real background check on everyone. and maybe the department of justice ought to enforce the law. >> still vice president joe biden one of the main advocates on a ban on military style rifles says he believes most americans agree with him. >> the competing budget plans are mild apart but at least there is not a government shutdown to worry about, at least for a while. the senate passed a bill to keep federal agencies funded through the end of september. round of applause. the rare bipartisan compromise wa

of day. today democrats dropped a key provision from their gun bill the assault weapons ban because harry reid said it didn't have the votes to pass. senator dianne feinstein who introduced the ban said it this way. i cannot fight the nra. the nra spends unlimited sums backed by the gun manufacturer who are craven in my view. i don't know what we can done other than drafting a bill. in asking for support and enabling something to pass in the senate now i could put a hold on the whole package but i'm not going to do that. so instead the rest of the gun safety bill will go forward without the assault weapons ban. of course there is a possibility it could be attached to a later bill but certainly there is not a guarantee. gun safety is fast becoming a low priority in washington. and another is immigration. john boehner praised the bipartisan house group working on immigration legislation. >> there are a lot of issues in here that have to be dealt with and i think what this bipartisan group came up with is frankly a pretty responsible solution. >> michael: sounds like progress but of course t

". >> this attitude of, well, we're not going to be able to -- this is why our side -- we have these we weinies on our side. this is what i actually admire about republicans. they have got the courage of their convictions. >> the nra's message does seem to be resonating, while a majority of americans are in favor of an assault weapons ban, polls also show support for gun control measures are fading. also are fading memories of newtown. we know dozens of children were murdered there, but moore suggests the horror of that day has now faded. he has an idea, though. if they wish, moore wants parents to release pictures of their children after they had been slaughtered by the gunman. >> in my blog i talked about a young man by the name of emmitt till, 1955, a young black kid that was murdered down south simply because he was black. and his mother insisted that there bow an open coffin because she wanted phot

leader harry reid acknowledged one bill-- an assault weapons ban crafted by california's dianne feinstein-- did not have enough support to move forward. >> but right now her amendment, using the most optimistic numbers, has less than 40 votes. i-- that's not 60. >> woodruff: a disappointed feinstein later said on cnn that she will not play dead on the issue, adding reid assured her she will have a chance to offer the ban as an amendment to a larger bill. >> if it's an amendment, that is not a symbolic vote. i did the bill in 1994 on the floor as an amendment. it enacted a law. it went on to the house. it was enacted. what senator reid told me is that i would have an opportunity for a vote. i take him at his word. >> woodruff: for now, reid and senate democrats are trying to find a way to get other measures passed. that includes an expansion of background checks, new penalties for gun trafficking and for so- called straw purchases-- when other individuals buy guns for those who aren't authorized to own them. reid is aiming for votes sometime after the easter recess. but there's still litt

that gives funding for school security. do you think harry reid made a good move? >> well, it's disappointing. but he's done the calculus and knows that an assault weapon bill will not pass the senate. sadly, i think he also knows that even in the democratically controlled senate, a background check for criminals, a universal background check for all of gun sales, including for criminals will not pass the senate. and it was certainly not going to pass the house. so that's what we're up against. and just so everyone is clear about this, you know, i'm a law-abiding gun owner. i own firearms, i go to a gun store where they run a background check. but it's perfectly legal in 33 states to buy guns from private dealers without a background check. so law-abiding gun owners go to gun stores, criminals go to private gun dealers legally and buy 1,000 weapons a day. it's amazing to me that our members of congress cannot find their backbone enough to require a criminal background check for criminals. >> well, senator feinstein and obviously the assault weapons ban was really what she was pushing hardest.
that the assault weapons ban would be tough. harry reid has taken it out of the bill, in spite of the fact that dianne feinstein was obviously very upset about it. was there miscalculation there by pushing the assault weapons ban so hard, knowing it was a long shot at best, does whatever happen, even if they get say background checks, does it look like they lost? >> no, we have to push hard on all these efforts. one, fix the broken background check system and make sure we close loopholes so criminals and people that are mentally ill cannot buy a gun. close fire sale loophole, when someone has your revoked, so they can sell it without background checks. fix those things. be sure people are entered into the national background check system. at the same time, we should be working hard to ban the presence of weapons of war, assault weapons, high capacity ammunition in the neighborhoods and cities and towns. there's no reason for that. we need to be pushing all of these. i haven't given up on the assault weapons ban, i recognize it will be hard to do, but we should put before congress and get v
